Shrimp Green Curry

April 25, 2011

Well hello there. It’s been awhile. Both you and my kitchen have been greatly neglected. Blame the law.

Given that we had an extra-long weekend and I only had to work one of those days, there was time and will for groceries and cooking. The weekend was also full of dinners out and much imbibing, so I wanted to cook something fresh and light. This curry was chock full of veggies and quick to make.  Very delicious and enough left over for lunch tomorrow.

4 cups mixed veggies (i used broccoli, red and yellow pepper and frozen stir fry mix)
1 can (400 mL) light coconut milk
1/2 cup vegetable broth
2 – 3 tbsp. green curry paste
1 1/2 tsp. sambal oelek
pinch chinese five spice
1 cup shrimp (pre-cooked)
couple handfuls of spinach
bunch of basil, thinly sliced

In a large saute pan, whisk together the coconut milk, broth, curry paste, sambal oelek and spice.

Add veggies and bring to a boil. Then reduce to a simmer.

After a few minutes when the veggies are nearly done, add shrimp, spinach and basil.  Cook a few minutes more.

Serve over rice.
